Email in the OR

Backstory: My mom is an OR nurse and was in surgery at the time, trying to look at a link I sent her via e-mail.

mom: I can’t look at it at work, they blocked it.
me: DUMB
mom: I know, way DUMB
me: what are you supposed to be doing?
mom: watching the field to see if they need anything
me: yeesh, it’s not like you’re saving lives or anything…
mom: Seriously! It’s just an eye.

      Oh man, now I know way too much about what OR nurses are doing. I’m never going to the doctor again.

      This OR nurse was just a circulator. She was only there if they needed her to grab something. As long as she is available to run and get something she is fine.

      Andrea…my chance are you a nurse? “only there” says it all.
      I just hope neither of you work anywhere near me or my family.
